Fallout Mutfruit Sweetrolls

The past couple of years I haven’t had as much time for gaming as I would like, so I tend to live vicariously through my husband and sons.  I can totally see why people can watch other people play video games and why Esports are becoming so popular.

Skip the long winded story and jump to the recipe now!

When I decided to start my blog I knew any free time I had was going to go out the window, leaving even less time for gaming, or reading, or for myself in any way shape or form.  So I’m really kind of excited to be creating low carb recipes related to games, movies, and books!  I feel like I get to kind of geek out for a bit in my own way that still lets me be creative with my blog at the same time.

If you haven’t read it, my first foray into geeky baking was with Loot Crate’s Thanos Muffins of Death by Chocolate which I made lower carb.  This time I decided to dive into Loot Crate’s Dystopia June theme, and have created my own Fallout Mutfruit Sweetrolls!

Bethesda has included sweetrolls in many of it’s games as a running joke that has delighted fans for years.  I know John has seen sweetrolls since The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (2002).  When researching the start of the sweetroll phenomenon though, I found references of it as far back as The Elder Scrolls: Arena (1994).  There are so many real life versions of the Elder Scroll sweetrolls though, that I wanted to shoot for something a little different.

Thankfully, sweetrolls also make an appearance in the Fallout universe!  They look much different than the bundt cake shaped sweetrolls from Elder Scrolls though!

Kind of ugly right?  Perfect!  Because my baking pretty much always looks like that anyway!

Mutfruit (sometimes pronounced mutt fruit, but is actually mute fruit) are mutated berries/fruit in the Fallout universe that look like mutated blueberries or blackberries (or apples depending on the game).  I decided to use both blueberries and blackberries to imitate what I imagine mutfruit to taste like (minus the radiation) and the combination is dang tasty!

I’m really happy to say that this recipe passed the taste test by the regular carb/sugar eaters in my house.  I actually had to hide a couple in the back of the fridge for my husband; my oldest son, Seth, would have eaten them all in one day.  I wouldn’t usually mind, but my husband needed the hitpoints, and I needed his honest critique… sorry Seth!

So head on over to your favorite cooking station to try this recipe out and let me know what you think!

I made 6 sweetrolls with this recipe; however, next time (and Seth insists there will be a next time), I plan on making a full 8 servings by not filling the cake pans so much.  I was having trouble finishing one of these, so I think just a bit less batter will help.  It will also bring the calorie count down some, which I wasn’t very happy with.  At present, I calculated these at 6 servings though.

A couple additional notes, I only counted the calories for the sweetroll batter including the berry puree; however, I did not actually use all of the berry puree (maybe only about 3/4 of the mixture).  And I didn’t include nutritional data from the icings because I didn’t know how to calculate a smear of icing on top of the sweetrolls.  Because this is clearly a special treat, I don’t recommend this as part of your regular diet – maybe only when throwing your annual Fallout party.  I’m not the only one who has those right?

Per serving, this comes to about 380 calories, 5 grams net carbs, 10 grams of protein, and 35 grams of fat.  I used the MyFitnessPal recipe creator to calculate nutritional information.  Nutritional values may change based off the ingredient brands you use, and of course, the size/number of servings you make.

I hope everyone enjoys!  Let me know what you think in the comments!

Please don’t mind the mess.
